Back when my older and I are younger, we always joined the Flores De Mayo (Flower of May) class at the chapel. This Flores de Mayo classes happens in the month of May of course and will end on the last day of the month. On the last day of the month, there is a small program/activity in the chapel. There is Santacruzan, a procession in the village of queens and princesses and the star of the procession is Reyna Elena. It was our dreams to wear gowns and be one of the princesses. But unfortunately, it didn’t happen. We are sad because we wanted to feel like a queen/princess once in our life.
Our time has passed, and there is no way we can make that dreams come true. However, in our behalf the two nieces will be fulfilling that dreams for us. They attended Flores de Mayo for three years now, and this year they are one of the princesses. The girls are excited and we are so happy because this is a dream come true. We are looking for a nice gown for them so the girls will shine and look very pretty. Surely, this experience will be added to their childhood memories book.

In two weeks time my nieces will be going back to school but in different school. New environment for them but good thing is they are enrolled in a school where my sister teaches. Because of financial problems they will no longer be in a private school. Their parents are just being practical because times are really hard nowadays. Today, they are finally enrolled in the new school with the help of my sister (their aunt). Part of the rules as a transferee and in first grade is to test if the student can read. It is important for them to recognized letters so that not difficult for a teacher to start the teaching class. I am so happy that my nieces can recognize letters and can read even slowly. They are now ready for school and I must say they are excited. I am proud of them having the skills in reading because it is an advantage for a kid to know how to read. Thanks to their previous school and to my sister who is a teacher who give her time to teach them how to read.

Our screen door has fall down because my nieces are always ride on it. I do not know what they are thinking but they keep on doing that. My father has scolded them still they are doing it. After several times of doing it, it fell down the other day. My father was so angry because it can’t be fix anymore. The wood was broken apart. Bad thing is that we do not have budget to buy screen door to replace it. If only they are not hard headed it our screen door will still be there. But no matter how angry we are, we do not have any choice but to accept it and save money to buy a new one. We have to replace it soon because screen door is very important to prevent mosquitoes and flies to enter the house. It will take time to replace it especially nowadays that times are really hard. I wish that we would find a way to replace it soon.
